A chartered plane carrying an air ambulance from Mumbai to carry organs fell off the runway while landing at Nanded Airport. The incident took place at 12 midnight on Wednesday. The plane crashed into the mud after falling off the runway. Fortunately, the plane’s doctors, pilots and co-pilots survived the crash.
Two planes, including an air ambulance and a chartered plane, arrived from Nanded to carry the organs. Meanwhile, both the planes landed at the city airport around midnight on Wednesday just as heavy rains were continuing in Nanded. This time the air ambulance landed on the runway properly. While landing, however, the chartered plane skidded off the runway and crashed into side mud.
Airport officials arrived at the scene shortly after the incident. The doctors, pilots and co-pilots were evacuated. The incident is being kept secret by the authorities. The cause of the crash is not yet known. Meanwhile, the return flight of both the planes was suspended after the accident. Besides, four flights Nanded-Mumbai, Nanded-Hyderabad, Nanded-Chandigarh and Nanded-Delhi have also been canceled.
